Be sure to check out all the entries @ Tickled to Tangle, on Monday afternoon, when Adele Bruno posts them. The vast differences that can be achieved using the same tangles on the same string are truly incredible. And, if you've a mind to try a String Thing yourself, check back on Tuesday afternoon, when she offers the new ones.

A Little of This, and a Little of That

Diva's Challenge #252, 
"String Theory: Tangle within a Tangle"

This week the Diva (Laura Harms) challenged us 
to use a tangle as our string.
So I used Weave, by Helen Williams
 and filled it with
Paradox,
Hybred,
Onomato, 
Hypnotic,
and Coaster
 I really like it.
 Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself. ```````````````````````````````````````````````````````
It's a String Thing #129
 Use String #169, by Beth Snoderly:
 
and 
Caught by Christine Reyes
LG by Adele Bruno
and
LaBel by Sue Jacobs, CZT


I had not used LaBel before, but it seemed to fit. 
So I used all three tangles

It's a String Thing #128
Last week I did the String Thing challenge, 
but never sent it in or posted it. 
So since it's done, I'm posting it now.

I did white on black first, but wasn't really happy with it.
So I redid it black on white, and like it much better.
That's it for this week. See you soon.

Diva's Challenge #249 DuoTangle: Celebrate with Diva Dance and Auraknot

The Diva's first Challenge of 2016 is in celebration 
of the 5th Anniversary of Diva Challenges.
It's a Duo-Tangle of Diva Dance and Auraknot.

 This was my first tile; I like it, 
but though it might be a bit minimalist:
 So I added more Diva Dance:
 I'm not really sure it's an improvement.

Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other 
wonderful entries; it's amazing how different 
all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired 
to try out one of the Challenges yourself.

String Thing #121

At Adele Bruno's Tickled to Tangle site this week, 
she offers this string as the basis for It's a String Thing #121
 
Once the tree is penciled in, add the amoeba-like shapes that Aquafleur begins with, like so ~
 
and fill each section with Aquafleur, 
which is one of my favorite Tangles. 
She suggests varying the sizes of the sections for more variety.
This is what I came up with:
I'm rather pleased with it. I hope you like it, too.

Square One has you going back to the basics;
Try it, you may like it.
